The former Scotland manager has steadied the ship at Tynecastle since replacing Ian Cathro as manager back in August, but some of his side’s football is often criticised for being far too defensive, particularly away from home.
And tonight’s Premiership match away at Pittodrie was no different, with Levein lining-up with a 3-5-2 which often looked more like a 5-3-2, and it wasn’t long before the Dons quickly picked them apart.
In fact, Aberdeen had roared into a 2-0 lead by half-time, and judging by the reaction to the display on social media, there’s plenty of Jambos out there who are sick and tired of watching the same brand of football:
Get Craig Levein to fuck out of our club. FUCK OFF @JamTarts

Craig Levein doing his best to alienate @JamTarts fans.
Turgid unimaginative football with no shots on goal.
No fight, passion or organisation.

Hearts under Craig Levein. It's just never going to end well, is it? It should be nipped in the bud for the sanity of some. For others though, the hilarity continues.

Craig Levein is an embarrassingly bad manager

Craig Levein should consider personally paying for fans to travel. He provides nothing. Our away record is pathetic. https://t.co/2LJxB8UMev

Of course, nobody expects Hearts to be like Real Madrid, but should their supporters be expecting a bit more than they’re currently getting?
What do you think?
